We always love Ciao, but this was a small disappointment. Valentine’s Day , plus we were observing abstaining from meat as it was Ash Wednesday. There were many meatless options on the menu, so I chose Lobster ravioli. The menu described it as stuffed with lobster “with lobster on top”,so for $32 I was expecting lobster on top and there was none. So, I really couldn’t justify $32 for a pasta dish, although it did have lobster in it.

Hate to leave this, as my wife and I were looking forward to a place we have never been. Bad drinks, tasteless food, makeover needed badly. Besides that, everything was fine. There are too many nice places in Naples to ever return here.

Group of six and we had a nice round table. Good wine. Asked for a dish that was not on the menu, spicy bolognese over pasta, for two of us. Delicious!

The burrata appetizer is excellent as are the pastas. The service both times we went was top notch. It’s a great value on Monday nights when they offer 1/2 price pastas.

Lovely authentic italian dining. The veal is so tender. And it is veal not fake like some other Naples overpriced restaurant claims. Tenderly cooked to perfection, not deep fried. The extra parking is a +++.

Ciao has the best calves liver I've ever had. Excellent early bird menu as well as regular menu. Great service and quiet so you can have a conversation. This is a gem that is one block off 5th Ave.

On our first experience with Ristorante-Ciao we were given a great table in the corner for the two of us, very nice. The food was excellent but our waitress, Natalie, really made the dinner very enjoyable. She was such a professional in explaining our options and her service was outstanding. This is a well run restaurant, highly recommend!

This was my first time dining at this restaurant, however, the couple who joined us raved about other occasions when they had dined there. I had the Osso Buco and was very pleased. My husband loved the grouper picante—authentic Italian cuisine.
